    Had the 4TB Red (WD40EFRX) drive from 2016 go bad in my Premiere 4 tuner, what's the state of drives for these now with all the CMR/SMR stuff? I've seen some say no to Purple and to stick with Red, others yes. Trying to strike the cost balance.

    Thanks

    You can still get EFRX drives, use purple also. It can also use up to 8TB.

    Not seeing too many EFRX drives for a reasonable price, seems like purple it is. 4TB seems like the good balance of price / storage currently.

    How about the RED Plus 'CMR'?

    The EFRX are CMR WD Red Plus.
    You can still get them at Amazon. Current for a 4TB is about $120, 6TB $150.
